Lectures: 1. Introduction, types of textile measurements 2. Use of computers in textile labs (sensors, data processing, analysis, and presentation of results) 3. Sampling, number of measurements, lab conditions 4. Moisture sorption, moisture measurement, sample weighing 5. Geometry of fibers (length, cross-section, fineness/linear density, maturity, HVI) 6. Geometry of yarns (linear density, twist, unevenness, purity, hairiness) 7. Geometry of fabrics (construction parameters, area and volume density, cover factor, porosity) 8. Linear and area non-evenness (basic methods of measurement, analysis of results) 9. Ultimate mechanical characteristics, moduli, special types of loading 10. Cyclic, semi-cyclic and dynamic testing 11. Fabric stability (shape consistency, color fastness) 12. Wearing of fabrics (abrasion, friability, fire resistance) 13. Physiological properties of fabrics (handle, heat transfer, air permeability, moisture transport,wettability, water absorption, pressure water penetration) 14. Image analysis in textile testing (basic tools, structure analysis of fibers, yarns, and fabrics) Practicals: 1. Schedule introduction, work safety in laboratories 2. Practice on data acquisition and processin (basic use of statistics) 3. Graphs used in data processing - construction of histogram, and stapl diagrams 4. Measurement of fiber length 5. Measurement of fiber fineness 6. Measurement of yarn fineness 7. Measurement of yarn twists 8. Analysis of fabric parameters 9. Measurement of the strength and strain 10.

Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to make students familiar with basic principles of textile materials testing and their importance for quality control of textile products. Within the lectures will be explained the specifics of measuring systems for textile materials, further will be presented methods and procedures for evaluation of physical and geometrical properties of textiles, and measurements of their surfaces and unevenness. Furthermore, basic methods of static and time-dependent mechanical properties measurements will be presented. Finally, the basics of fastness and utility testing will be explained, and the application of image analysis in textile testing will be presented.
